    Yes I am going to stony! The first day of orientation is actually in exactly 2 weeks and then school starts the week after. So nervous and excited and happy and anxious and all these other feelings lol. I got into binghamton's accelerated prog as well, but I'm really happy I went with stony instead even though I wanted to go back to my alma mater. But congrats on making that tough decision! Maybe I'll see you at stony? haha

    this is the toughest decision but i know that in the long run ill be Better off not having 90k of debt

    also rochester is 87k which is way too much

    Stony Brook is a very reputable school and they dont have clinicals with robots lol so its much much Better

    im not paco, but maybe my 2 cents might help? stonybrook has a very high passing rate for 1st-time NCLEX takers. in the state, it's only second to columbia. so their passing rate is higher than nyu's and rochester's. also, you might wanna consider other factors, like travel/living expenses. maybe take a tour of the campus/area to see if youre comfortable there and see yourself excelling there. i personally wouldnt want or be comfortable paying 90K for nyu, even though it has good name recognition. with stony, i know it has good connections with the stonybrk hospital so that could be good job-wise
    YES ... what she said Well said, spiritedkidd

    Don't concern yourself with "ranking" at the bachelor's level, and look at the quality of the program itself and how respected it is in the nursing community (ie., Stony Brook vs. Everest -- no contest there!). Stony Brook hands down is excellent for the price you pay and the program is well respected among hospitals. Employers see Stony Brook School of Nursing on a resume and they know right away the new graduate got a great education. As for NCLEX preparation, the stats speak for themselves, especially with regards to my class .. I previously told you how many in my class passed NCLEX on the first try, impressive numbers. Stony Brook is also attached to a top regional hospital and if you're just concerned with getting a job, odds of getting a job there graduating from Stony Brook (or North Shore/LIJ for that matter) are better than NYU grads getting jobs @ NYU Langone (because after all, RNs make on avg $10K more @ NYU Langone than at Stony Brook and everybody and their grandmother wants to work in the city these days). So when you're facing the job hunt with looming student loans, what's better? Having a loan balance from Stony Brook or one from NYU?

    NYU = high tuition + high living expense$$

    Rochester = SNOW (need I say more? LOL! I lived in Western NY for 3 years, I know the agony).

    So Stony Brook is a no-brainer in my op, but then again I am super-biased as an alumni.

    As for grad school, my opinion is different. Go for the gold I say. I intend on going to Columbia for that (MSN or PhD ... haven't decided yet). By then, I will likely be back in the city so this will be easier for me.
